in the all-important state of ohio. president obama will be staying close to washington as he continues to monitor the developments of this storm. let's talk about ohio and why it is a particularly close race there. we asked likely voters who their choice was for president. barack obama has a 50% to 46% margin over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, i
the ability to try things out for yourself if romney gets a certain state, if president obama gets a certain state. but this is something brand new here that i want you to see here. you can click on any state in the country and find out how much money each of the candidates have spent there, how many times they've visited there and how much money they have raised there. for example, you're in ohio. this shows here how much money president obama has spent and in that same time frame how much money mitt romney has spend. also how much of the spending went tol negative ads versus positive ads. fascinating. and then what you can do is compare any two states in any category. so take a look here. i was wondering how often the candidates have visited ohio and how often they visited colorado. so i typed in those two states and it shows me how many times in this campaign season they visited each and then you can snapshot each. you can take it and post it on twitter and facebook. speaking of facebook there was a study that find that facebook really can help get people to the poles. the i'm voting app
on the important battleground states, all of them. and jim avalon is in virginia, a state that president obama won four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
is in colorado. tomorrow, president obama will be here in ohio. it's another of those battleground states we have talked about so much. cnn is in all of the hot spots. in colorado, we're live. you talked to "mountain mommas"? who are the mountain mommas. >> reporter: in political speak, they're the overcrowd. here, in this battleground state, a third of the registered voters are registered independents. drill that down even pfurther ad one of the key demos? suburban mothers. with the crunch of fall leaves beneath jogging strollers, this group of suburban colorado moms self-described "mountain mommas" hit their first lap chatting about the final leg in the race for president. >> i'm very torn. >> so you're undecided? >> i am definitely undecided. >> reporter: that makes tina the coveted surprise for both parties. >> knocks on my door, mail, to the tv ads. i put a note on my door that said "there are children napping in this house and i guarantee you you woent get my vote if you wake them up by knocking now" they're really bothering me. >> reporter: just listen to what the candidates have said viti
for the president to try to clench that state? >> because the obama campaign, fred, thinks this is going to be a nail biter and observers agree with them this is going to be a close race. four little electoral votes could really matter. taking a look at the polls, here in new hampshire, president obama has maintained a small lead, but it's within the margin of error on most polls so you can say statistically that mitt romney and president obama are tied and so we've seen president obama pay a lot of attention to this little state. he's been here ten times this year. he just touched down at the manchester airport just minutes ago, so this is his tenth time on the ground here. vice president biden is expected to be here on monday for an event. that storm willing, i should say, and this is an important state, fred, because new hampshire is a place where voters can register to vote on election day. yes, this state was very big for mitt romney in the republican primaries, but the obama campaign feels that they have a really strong get out the vote effort when you look at the campaign offices,
're not on the road? more from our exclusive interview with the first lady of the united states michelle obama. introducing the new 13-inch macbook pro, ♪ with the stunning retina display. ♪ for the pro in all of us. >>> you're watching a special hour here on cnn devoted to the presidential candidates biggest supporters, their wives. what's life like when they're not on the campaign trail? here's more from our chief correspondent jessica yellin. >> michelle obama is a fierce defender of her husband's administration. and these days a regular presence on the campaign trail. target audience? women. >> you talk a lot about what your husband has done for women. at the same time, the number of women in poverty has grown during his time in office. it's now at a 17-year high. what is your message to those women? >> this election couldn't be more important for women on so many different issues. i mean, making sure women have equal pay is key to eliminating that gap in the economy. now because of health care reform, women have access to preventive care. things like breast cancer screenings and c
because president obama has declared a state of emergency in maryland where up to a foot of rain is expected there. now people are racing against time to protect their homes and that's where we can find athena jones. that's in annapolis. athena, obviously it's getting -- you're getting rained on there. doesn't appear to be as bad as it is in -- north carolina, kill devil hills. the storm surge though could be huge for people. are they worried where you are? >> reporter: hi, don. you're right. the rain did pick up a few hours ago. it's lessened a little bit now. people say that this is an area that floods very, very easily. you hear a lot of talk about what happened in hurricane isabel, businesses have plaques on their walls showing how far the water came up. right now people today were getting sandbags to protect their homes and businesses. western ab we were able to speak to a coffee shop owner who said he's hopeful they are not going to get the worst of the flooding but he was getting prepared anyway. >> what we're expecting is we're not expecting floods coming up, but we have
and on swing state, virginia. president obama resumes campaigning tomorrow, just five days before the election with appearances in green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, and las vegas. unchartered waters of the two campaigns, no doubt about it. the same for election officials in some of the areas that are hit by sandy. joe johns is with us now from washington. do we have, joe, any idea, six days out, of the potential disruptions we could see on election day? >> reporter: we're at least beginning to get an outline of it, but we just won't be sure until we get to election day. we have been paying a lot of attention to the battleground states, virginia, pennsylvania, and north carolina, all in the past, if you will, of the storm. the issues are about whether early voting is affected and then what is going to happen on election day. okay, starting with pennsylvania, there is no early in person voting in pennsylvania, but the question is whether in person voting on election day might be affected in and around philadelphia. now, this was a state that was just slightly beginning to tick over to the
to college students. they were really enthusiastic in 2008, helping barack obama win this state, winning the nine electoral votes. this time around they are not as enthusiastic. college students are telling us the reason for that is because they don't think they'll have a job when they graduate from college. so, christine, you have it absolutely right. what it comes down to here in this swing state, it is about jobs and how it's affected people personally. >> kyung lah, the white house just released its statement on the jobs report this morning, saying -- the very first words are more work needs to be done, it provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal. so both the white house and the romney campaign weighing in. >>> the last jobs report, of course, is not without controversy. some even accused the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about t
at wisconsin, this is a place where, obviously, it's key. it's a battleground state. president obama has had a small lead. and he needs to maintain that. he is trying to shore up support. you look at a poll out this morning from nbc wall street journal. it has him up three points here. that is important, but it is not really comfortable. there was a poll out yesterday from marquette university, a local poll done out of milwaukee that had him up much more than that, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, certainly they're pointing to the marquette poll. they want this appearance that they're doing very well and just trying to hold their lead here. it seems more likely that their internal polls are somewhere in between those two polls, carol. something also interesting today when the president speaks, ahead of him charles woodson, safety for the green bay packers, will be firing up crowd. you know folks here in green bay love the packers. he is a safety. what does the safety do? the safety protects against long passes -- that's right, the hail mary. that's something that the obama campa
nights. zirjts the polls show president obama with a slight edge in some crucial states. the nbc-wall street journal-marris poll gives the president a six-point lead over romney in iowa, and it shows the president ahead by three points, and in new hampshire he has a two-point edge. both candidates, they are on the campaign trail today. of course, the president is returning for the first time since superstorm sandy hit. he is starting the day in green bay, wisconsin, and now it's on to vegas and denver. romney is it in virginia today. his first stop, roanoke, next stop dodwell and virginia beach. no republican has won the white house without caring ohio. a cnn poll shows president obama with a three-point lead over mitt romney in the state. the question is can he maintain it? ali velshi, jon avalon with us now. they've been talking to locals in a restaurant in youngstown, ohio. good to see you, guys. it's been very, very busy, i know. ali, i want to start off with you. 2008 president obama won ohio by four points. you have been talking to a lot of undecided folks. does it seem lik
presidential race in history. both campaigns are blitzing to woo ohio's voters and to try to score the state's 18 electoral votes. here is the latest poll of polls. finds this, 49% of ohio's likely voters support president obama. 46% of ohio's likely voters support mitt romney. it is that close. and, of course, in ohio, every single vote is valuable. ballots are guarded and tracked with ferocious precision. but i got a behind the scenes up close look in one county to see how the ballots are actually counted. here it is. in person -- >> name, two forms of i.d., signature, looks good. >> reporter: or by mail, all ballots in hamilton county, ohio, end up here, election headquarters. >> so this is when the absentee ballots come back from the post office. we have the clerks who scan them back in and check them for making sure they're valid. >> reporter: processed by an army of staff, volunteers, and machines. norman jr.'s turn now. a brand-new machine named after the character in the movie psycho, because of this noise. norman scans, photographs, and separates ballots into precincts. >> we start
of the state very hard. president obama was in that area yesterday. governor romney is here in the milwaukee area today. what happened in green bay will not translate, likely, throughout the entire state, but you can imagine that the folks who are tied to the defense contracts will be leaning towards mitt romney because it hits home for them. bottom line here in wisconsin, like many other states across this country, jobs is the number one issue. >> the recovery here in nevada has been spotty at best. so has the highest unemployment rate in the country. 11.8% here in clark county. 12.3%. we're on top of the stratosphere here. this hotel and casino has poured more than $20 million into renovations in the last couple of years. they are optimistic that things are going to get better. they even added jobs, more than 100 in the last couple of months. and there are others smaller signs that things are getting better. that's the strip behind me, the big blue building to the left, that's 70% completed for more than a year. it cost $2.9 billion to get to this point so far. and it looks like they're go
nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even without this vast field organization. it probably just gave him some extra electoral votes as sort of a cushion back in 2008. >> you say the romney campaign has at least 800 offices -- obama has 800 offices compared to romney's 300. rick wiley says that this is the obama symbol of liberal big government mentality that the obama campaign thinks will put 100 offices in this state we're going to win, but we take a smaller smarter approach, he says, just like we do in government. do you think he has a point? >> well, it's certainly possible that they are just running a more efficient operation, and this is their rationale for why they have so many fewer. obama has more than three times as many field offices in ohio. more than twice as many
in the swing states like in ohio, in florida -- like ohio now, 50% for obama, 46%, romney. you can do that with all of them. and then there's a margin of error. if you have a three or four-point margin of error, you'll say, obama's in the lead but he's within the three-point margin of error, you really haven't told me anything. >> we've told you it's a close race. >> all right. let's talk about the poll of polls. when you factor -- there are different factors, there are different methodologies that go into poll of polls, right? but people -- the people who do the polling don't consider a margin of error but there are different margins of error that go into the poll of polls. what? >> i think the polls of polls or the various websites that track and aggregate the polls are useful. it's a place to look at a lot of polls at once. but those numbers are mixing good polls and bad polls, really large, substantial polls with really small minor polls. it's hard to get much other than a finger in the wind of how things might be blowing at the moment. i think it all -- it's all a part of the sen
suggest president obama with an advantage in several swing states so in the final few days of campaigning, is time reasoning out for mitt romney? and why he won't be returning to florida. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lines grow longer, his pain continues to linger. but after a long day of helping others, he gets some helpful advice. just two aleve have the strength to keep back pain away all day. today, jason chose aleve. just two pills for all day pain relief. try aleve d for strong, all day long sinus and headache relief. try aleve d for strong, all day long the wheels of progress haven't been very active lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. >>> here we go. five days left until the election and the president is back today on the campaign trail. he t
considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have asked likely voters who their choice is for president. barack obama has a 50%, a 46% margin over mitt romney -- they both have spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on the calendar. >>> critical information for millions of people to know, as hurricane sandy approaches the northeast, josh levs with the hurricane details as they come in. >> new information coming in by the minute. in just a matter of minutes, let me tell you what we're getting there right now. you're seeing our team of country throughout the country. we're gathering new information, including changes at the new york stock exchange, let me also tell you the new information we're getting from other states throughout the region, including great
president obama gets an up close and personal look at all of the images you are seeing on your screen. he's heading to new jersey to tour the state with governor chris christie later on this afternoon. while the republican governor may be one of the most prominent backers and surrogates of governor mitt romney, governor christie is vocal and public with the praise of president obama and the federal government's overall response to hurricane sandy. that's going to be help that's crucial to new jersey residents because just look at what they're facing. these are some of the newest pictures of the shore. where you can see that entire communities have been washed away, buried in sand or just ripped apart by the force of sandy. home after home, practically washed out to sea, in fact. rivers have just sprung up where previously there was only sand. more than 75% of the jersey shore is actually flooded and more than 2 million customers in new jersey have no power. look at the water still there. unbelievable. six people so far the toll of those who have died in jersey. this is the reality for the
-46 lead over president obama. in the battleground state of ohio, a poll of likely voters gives the president a 48% to 45% edge. and a star tribune poll gives the president a three-point advantage. but that's also within the poll's margin of error. super stom sandy is bearing down on election 2012. both campaigns don't want to bother you while you watch the water rise in your basement. but the storm is suspending early voting and the optics of both campaigns, president obama has a quick campaigning and run to country. and mitt romney can't attack the president while he's trying to steady the ship, or can he? with us is lz granderson and will cain. thanks for joining us, guys. >> we just heard the president has decided not only to cancel a florida campaign appearance he had scheduled forred to but also canceling another one scheduled for washington so he can be in d.c. and keep the ship steady. i suppose that's a great idea, right, lz? >> it's the smart idea. that's what the president of the united states should do in a situation like this. we're talking about a storm that could
, the firefighters in queens, the coast guard divers and many others. president obama also telling local and state officials to cut through red tape, praising the work of governor chris christie of new jersey, of governor cuomo here in new york, also mayor michael bloomberg in new york city, saying he wanted to give the resources, whatever resources the federal government perhaps unconditional ones, the military may have, put them at the disposal of the officials to try to cut through any red tape and to try to speed this relief effort along. president obama also, we have learned now, is going to be going to new jersey tomorrow to tour some areas that are hardest hit with governor chris christie of new jersey. we'll be hearing a lot more from him no doubt tomorrow as well as for governor christie. a short time ago, we learned the stock exchange will reopen tomorrow after two days in the dark. alison kosik joins me right now. what are you hearing? >> we're hearing the opening bell will ring at 9:30 in the morning. the trading floor, the building is operational and ready to go. they spent the past c
i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette p
